The King County Road Services Division took advantage of dry fall weather to wrap up the 2007 countywide paving program for 2007 in October.

This year, more than 103,000 tons of asphalt were used to overlay 52 miles of roads in unincorporated King County and the local cities that contract with the Roads Division. Even through the cost of asphalt increased about 17 percent over last year, the division was able to meet its paving goals by adjusting the thickness of the overlay on the less-traveled roadways.

In conjunction with the paving, the division also built 143 ramps at intersections in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
